Cavs send Celtics to record loss, 130-86, lead series 2-0

Inside The NBA discusses the Cavaliers' Game 2 rout of the Celtics, led by LeBron James' 30 points.

BOSTON (AP) - The Celtics say point guard Isaiah Thomas is sitting out the second half of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Cleveland because of a right hip strain.

"We just want to try to get better", James said. "They're not the Monstars on 'Space Jam.' They lace up their shoes just like us". They happened to play better than us in Game 1.

LeBron James scored 22 points in the first half.

But Thomas aggravated the strained right hip again during the first half Friday night and could not return after halftime. "Move" and he hit a pair of first-quarter 3-pointers.

Stevens said the guard "hasn't felt great" since tweaking the injury earlier in the playoffs and "looked much different" (read: worse) during the first half of Game 2. When he went back to the locker room our training staff and doctors got with him. These end game statistics do not match up with the performances we were given throughout the majority of the game; as the Cavaliers were able to utterly dominate the Celtics in the paint scoring heavily in there. That guy's a tough guy, and he plays through a lot.

Thomas will have additional tests Saturday and will be re-evaluated before the team determines his status for Game 3.

"It's one game. I don't care if you win by 200 points", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

"No, I think they're too competitive for that", Rivers said. "Ultimately, they were terrific. You've got to be able to pick up the slack, certainly, when other guys aren't available".

To Brown's credit, he did score 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting to lead the Celtics. That was followed by another on Stevens. The Celtics also had 21 turnovers, which led to 23 Cleveland points. Boston's leading scorer, Avery Bradley, had just nine points. We understand that this is a good team. (Assuming you are indeed still watching.) When the East finals shift to Cleveland on Sunday, will there be a shred of suspense or a sense of the unexpected left in this series? "I know what I bring to the table", he said. "They're not in my head".

In a 130-86 win, the Cavs lead from their first field goal of the game - a Kyrie Irving floater 57 seconds into the game.

The english language can not possibly hold enough words to adequately describe the failure of the Celtics in Game 2 Friday evening.

Not only has James been a handful for Boston defenders this series, but Kevin Love has also been almost unstoppable at times.

James has scored 30 points in eight straight games as he looks to visit the finals for the seventh-straight season.
